We are searching for a Chief Writer / Director of Content who will oversee the production and editing of written content for our clients. This will range from op-eds, which we’ve secured but our clients are too busy to write; blog posts for our clients’ sites; public profiles for social media; to sexy intros to podcasts.
You will be able to vary your writing to different styles effortlessly, turn around copy fast and translate often-boring corporate jargon into snappy media-friendly copy with clear story angles.
Ideally you will have a background in business and/or journalism because being able to spot strong news lines will be key to your role. In other words, you will need to recognise what makes a story and form strong arguments for op-ed pieces. You’ll also need to get your head around a variety of topics from Brexit to women’s health.
Right Angles is a small, tight-knit team of PR and CEO reputation specialists. Based in Soho, we have an incredibly niche offering, and there are just fifteen of us - and we don't want to grow much larger. But we need two more people - hard-working, highly motivated self-starters who can take responsibility, deliver results and work at an intense level, often for long hours.
We do CEO PR. Take a look at what that means here.
We don't do 'regular' PR in the sense of corporate or consumer PR. We look after the CEO only, doing their personal PR - positioning them as a thought leader on the global stage, getting them keynote speaking opportunities around the world, making introductions to the most senior journalists/editors, arranging feature interviews, creating and running their social media profile and blog, writing articles, speeches and presentations etc. We also work with Family Offices, managing and controlling the personal and business exposure for individuals.
A significant portion of our activities is not strict PR, and may involve turning our skills to helping secure investment, company acquisitions/disposals, extending a client's professional network, or building strategic sales partnerships for their companies in the UK and internationally. All executed behind the scenes.
We look after them as a 'person' too - coaching, advising, and acting as a 'sounding board' - generally 'being there' for whatever they need. Our services work alongside, and build upon, their existing corporate media team. We are not publicists and we are not their press office.
This service is something really new, very niche, and wholly bespoke. We never get a brief. We tell our clients what they need to do, and then we make it happen. They rely on us 24/7.
We are ambitious and highly motivated individuals. Everybody in our company is a self-starter, flexible and comfortable working with very little guidance. Due to the nature of our work, we operate at an incredibly fast pace and thrive when working to very tight deadlines. We often work unsociable hours including weekends and are happy to share responsibility for all tasks.
Please send a covering letter and CV to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please also include the following task:
One of our clients is a successful female hedge fund manager. She’s had huge success in investing in tech start-ups. We’ve had a commission from Entrepreneur magazine for her to write an 800 word piece (approx) on why women are such good investors, and how there is an emerging trend of female tech investors. You are required to draft this piece on behalf of our client.
Agencies? No thanks - Sorry guys. We will do the leg-work on this one ourselves.
